    Upgraded my PC, not sure how to go about activating windows.


    So I upgraded my PC, but the issue is, is that i'm re-using the same windows 10 that was in my old one, so whenever I try to activate, it tells me that another PC is running the same windows as my old one, yet my new one has it. How would I go about trying to activate it?

    :)

  2. Activating Windows 10 after upgrade

    Hi Varghese,

    Thank you for posting your reply. Apologize for the delay in response.

    I would like to inform that as you are using an Genuine Windows 7 in your system,
    Windows 10 will automatically be activated online and create a digital entitlement for your device.

    If you still face issues with Activation after upgrading to Windows 10, suggest you to activate the Operating System through phone by following the steps below:

    • Press “Windows key + R” and type “slui 4” and press Enter.
    • Select the Region from the list and click Next.
    • Call the Toll-Free number provided on top and can activate via phone.

    Hope the information is helpful. Do get back to us for any other assistance.

    If you upgraded to Windows 10 for free and ended up in a non-activated state, try following these steps:

    • Go to Start
      Upgraded my PC, not sure how to go about activating windows. [​IMG]
      , then select Settings > Update & security > Activation.
    • Select Go to Store, and check to see if a valid license is available for your device. If a license isn't available, you'll need to buy Windows from the Store.

      Note
      • This only applies if you haven't made changes to the hardware for your device.

    or you could hack it with a crack but please note this is always risky and you don't know what's in the hack
